Designed and Constructed by PROCON
Chelsea, MA – Construction is nearing completion on the Holiday Inn Express located on Broadway in downtown Chelsea. Allen & Major Associates, Inc. (A&M) has partnered with the development team of XSS Hotels and PROCON designer and construction manager to provide full-site design, engineering survey, permitting, and landscape architectural services for this 124-room extended-stay hotel.
A&M’s survey department provided existing conditions, construction layout and foundation certification for the project. Civil engineering services include site design, permitting, landscape architecture design, and erosion control monitoring. Due to the building’s size, the project was considered a major commercial project and required a special permit and major site plan review from the city of Chelsea.
In collaboration with J. Masterson Construction Corp. and Salmon Falls Nursery & Landscaping, the new hotel is a beautiful example of greening and reuse of an underutilized urban parcel.
This proposed project transformed an existing blighted vacant parcel into a welcoming gateway feature for those traveling into Chelsea. Situated on the banks of Mill Creek, the project boasts a newly envisioned meandering public pedestrian walkway, flanked by freshly established native landscaping and shoreland vegetation. This also provides a seamless connection to the existing Mill Creek Riverwalk.
This is A&M’s fourth hotel project in Chelsea.
